The multimedia “playable” search engine SeeqPod has attracted 5.5 million unique monthly visitors over the past year. Through affiliate and API that number will likely double this year, according to the company’s spokesperson.
With more and more Internet users searching for multimedia content like video and songs, SeeqPod CEO Kasian Franks recognized the need for a multimedia search engine. Seeqpod’s search results, or “discovery results”, can be watched, listened to, and read.
SeeqPod finds videos and other multimedia in the “deep web,” like social networks. So unlike YouTube and other video aggregators, SeeqPod won’t wait for the videos to come to them—they’ll bring them to you. Its user-friendly indexing and its playlist feature, where users can easily select and sample a slew of multimedia to find out if it’s relevant, will make searching a much more interactive experience.
